The Family Pet is a full-service Seattle veterinary practice based in Ballard with over 70 years of experience, offering modern medicine with traditional values. Being a family owned business, pets aren't treated according to a corporate template or prescribed treatment that your pet may not need. We furnish individualized treatment for each patient at a level you select.
Doctors Carrie Schneider, Mary Kay Hilmoe, Shannon Nagasako, Angela Krzmarzick and our highly qualified support staff are experienced in complicated cases and geriatric medicine. They are motivated to make your pets visit pleasant while offering the best possible diagnostic and treatment options.
We strive to furnish the very best veterinary services and education to our clients to help our patients lead longer, healthier lives.
